Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launches in just about just about four weeks. So to get everyone caught up on what the plot revolves around, Ubisoft has released a new story trailer.

Crawford Starrick is the leader of London’s 1868 crime syndicate. Holding control over the power figures of London society, Starrick is essentially the era’s Kingpin of sorts. The new trailer introduces us to Starrick’s seven influential underlings, and explains why they’re going to be difficult foes to conquer within Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

“So what’s the plan?”, asks Syndicate co-lead Jacob Frye. “To free future generations from a city ruled by Templars”, responds fellow co-lead, and twin to Jacob, Ellie. Utilizing their skills as Master Assassins., the plan is to take over Starrick’s gangs, and thus, cripple his control over London. To do so, Jacob and Ellie plan to recruit a gang of their very own.

Ubisoft touts a bunch of new features for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. As the series’ first modern Assassins, your weapon arsenal includes the kukri knife, brass knuckles, and a sword cane in brutal combat. You will also be able to utilize the new rope launcher to scale buildings and surprise foes quicker than ever. As far as locations and modes of transport, Ubisoft brags that “from Buckingham Palace to Big Ben, fight and triumph across the fast-paced open world of Industrial London using high-speed trains and carriages.”

You can watch the drama unfold in the new trailer just below. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 23rd.
